Today I tweeted ‘need some work experience #please’
Within a few hours one of the DJ’s at my local radio station replied with ‘where are you based?’. Within minutes I was offered work experience.
Throughout the day emails and tweets have been sent back and forth and I start work experience at Radio Hartlepool next Tuesday.
People often say that social networks are killing society – that they prevent us from communicating face to face – but for people trying to get the career they want they are nothing but useful. I have a twitter, a facebook, a blog, a tumblr, a linkedin and when it was popular I had a myspace.
Point being that twitter and other social networks can be the most powerful weapons at our disposal – whether we use them for good or bad is up to us. In this case twitter has only brought about good things for me and I am hopeful that it will keep doing so.
